Here is the new belt along side the old one.
I put the new belt on and I finished up the last piece of the green Christmas gift bag.
These are all four pieces with their linings sewn on.
I was able to then single crochet the sides, front and back together.
I whipped stitch the bottom on to the “box” so that it would sit flat.
I chained two 6 inch chords for handles in a Christmas colors variegated yarn and attached them to the ends of the front and back of the bag.
TA DA GREEN CHRISTMAS GIFT BAG!
I found this on allfreecrochet.com with the link to the cable heart gift bag on Moogly. I chose to do the 2 plain backs to make this a Christmas bag. This is the second bag I have done using this pattern.
